My ex-girlfriends. They would have helped me get there faster. But those parasites would probably enjoy it.
That’s what I’d want. They’d find it as hard to lift me as it was to love me.
When my uncle died, his six nephews carried him out. When my father died, it was the same six. We’re getting good at it, unfortunately.

I've really never given it much thought. I figure my children might want to have me stuffed in my old Levi Big Bells and paisley nehru shirt in an upright stance with one of my guitars strapped on so the grand and great grandchildren can see what they had to put up with while growing up. My children have a good sense of humor so they might have an old ipod stuck up my bottom loaded with my original songs. "Anyone want to hear grandpa sing?" "I do if someone else turns him on." "I'm not doing it". " I want to hear the music but I'm not doing it either".

"Well, when I die don't you bury me at all
Just nail my bones up on the wall
Beneath these bones let these words be seen
This is the bloody gears of a boppin' machine.

Roll on, rock on, raw bones
Well, there's still a lot of rhythm in these
Rockin' bones."

Back when I had a train track behind my house I told my wife to tie me to a caboose and put a spring on my arm so I could wave goodbye.

Now that I have a man made lake behind my house I've considered the flaming arrow thing, but think being launched by a trebuchet would be pretty cool.

Burn me to ashes. It’s cheaper, and I’ve been a pain enough already to the world. By the time that day comes, I’ll not only be dead, but heavy, too!
Same. And then shoot my ashes out of a cannon as the Melvins cover of "Goin' Blind" blares in the background at earsplitting volume. Done, over, no ham sandwiches in the church basement, go home. That's it. Literally.

I have no idea...

Been in Japan dang near half my life, but is it home?

I reckon I'll be past caring when the time comes, but it also seems kinda rude to just dump the decision on the survivors...

In any case I'll most likely be cremated and my wife will carry me in a bowling-ball-sized box, so that's one less thing

Cremation, My late wife, my late dogs and I will all be dumped into S.F. Bay together.

If I was to be buried, I would want a military funeral, flag draped coffin and military pall bearers.
